About the TTMI

The Trinity Translational Medicine Institute is located within the St James's Hospital campus in Dublin 8.

The Trinity College Dublin (TCD) Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Science and Chemistry established the Trinity Translational Medicine Institute (TTMI) in the Trinity Centre on the campus of St James's Hospital (SJH). TTMI will be formed from the merger of the Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM) and Sir Patrick Dun (SPD) laboratories to create a substantive Institute with over 40 Principal Investigators (PI's) and 150 scientists.

TTMI will focus on research in translational medicine for Trinity College Dublin and associated Trinity Health Ireland (THI) encompassing St James's Hospital and Tallaght Hospital.

The creation of TTMI fills a major strategic gap in current biomedical research capacity in Trinity College Dublin. TTMI will consolidate patient orientated research across TCD and THI creating a viable process, based on international best practice, for delivering basic to translational biomedical research.

TTMI will bridge basic biomedical discovery research on the main campus TCD with the clinical research within THI creating the new Trinity Translational Drug Development Pathway.
